The Protector (O'Malley Book 4) by Dee Henderson

Book Description:
Jack O'Malley is a fireman who is fearless when it comes to facing an inferno. But when an arsonist begins targeting his district, his shift, and his friends, Jack faces the ultimate challenge: protecting the one lady who witnessed the arsonist ... Book number four in the O'Malley series brings back Jack O'Malley from The Truth Seeker in a page-turning thriller. It's Christmas. And in this time of celebration, Cassie Ellis has found the real meaning of Christmas; Jack is still searching to understand. Who is Jesus? On that answer rests his hope that someone greater than he is in control of a situation spiraling into terror.

My Thoughts
Another amazing story in the series! Cassie is a former firefighter who was hurt during a fire. Jack is the jokster of the O'Malley family, but also a strong leader of his fire crew. An arsonist is targeting Jack and his crew, Cassie is in danger because she saw the arsonist and both have several personal issues hanging over their lives. Jack now must trust God to see them all safely through this trial.
I love Jack's sense of humor and loyalty to his family and crew. Cassie is a spunky lady. You would expect her to be bitter after all she's been through but she is the exact opposite. Jack is a sensitive man whose family relies on him to lighten the mood. Cassie is there for Jack when he needs her both in his personal and professional life, just as he is for her. His main problem is trusting God to take care of the people who are important to him. There are several twists and unexpected turns that leave you feeling everything the characters feel. A wonderfully written story!

Another 5/5 for Dee Henderson. This is one to go out and get today to read!
